Glamping Isle of Wight
Our beautiful glamping yurts have been handmade on the Isle of Wight and sit in a private field up behind the The Garlic Farm in Sandown. We’ve been growing garlic on the Isle of Wight ever since Granny Norah planted those first few cloves in her garden over 50 years ago. We have spent all the years since exploring its history and origins, experimenting with the many different varieties here on “the Island” and creating many garlic infused products from chutney to beer and ice cream.
The farm is ideally located for exploring the Island by car, bicycle or on foot.
Our yurts are perfect for couples and small families of 4, although they can sleep up to 6. Each of the yurts is 6 metres in diameter but they are all different in layout. The yurts include
- A Kingsize bed downstairs
- A ladder leading up to the mezzanine deck with 4 full size single mattresses upstairs with
- Ensuite Bathroom with flushing WC and walk-in shower
